Here’s What’s Happening at St. Peter’s

Jesus said, “Go and make disciples….”
Do you have a desire to grow in your faith and share your faith with others? We are in need of catechists for many grades on Monday afternoons during the school year. If you are interested, please call the Office of Faith Formation at 201 265 6019 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
St. Peter the Apostle is joining hands with our Brothers and Sisters in Christ across the Archdiocese of Newark to begin the We Are Living Stones Capital Campaign. We have embarked on this initiative to address the current and future needs here at St. Peter’s, and to strengthen our larger Church.
The HSA of St. Peter Academy will host our 2nd Annual Mardi Gras Tricky Tray Raffle and Dinner Fundraiser on February 4, 2016. We are accepting donations of new items to be raffled at this year’s event: small kitchen appliances, hand bags, restaurant gift certificates, sports event tickets, Scrip Gift Cards, etc. We are also in need of baskets. Please contact Kristen Kajiwara at 414-702-5282 or at email@example.com with donations or for more information. Baskets and donations can also be dropped off at the school office. The students of St. Peter Academy thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s Tricky Tray!
A Catholic education is a powerful tool for any child’s future, but for some children it is not financially within reach of their family. This is where the parishioners of St. Peter’s Church can give the opportunity of Catholic schooling to a child at St. Peter Academy by making a donation to our school’s Adopt-a-Student Fund. Any donation, big or small, can make a tremendous difference in a child’s life.
Please make checks out to St. Peter Academy – Adopt a Student Fund and mail to the school at 431 Fifth Avenue, River Edge, NJ 07661.

St. Peter the Apostle Church is pleased to announce the return of an exciting program for men and women who have suffered from divorce.

Pope Francis Announces the Jubilee of Mercy
Dear brothers and sisters, I have often thought of how the Church may render more clear her mission to be a witness to mercy; and we have to make this journey. It is a journey which begins with spiritual conversion. Therefore, I have decided to announce an Extraordinary Jubilee which has at its centre the mercy of God. It will be a Holy Year of Mercy … This Holy Year will commence on the next Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception and will conclude on Sunday, 20 November 2016, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe and living face of the Father’s mercy.

Priest, Profit, King: Fr. Barron Series
Jesus is the Anointed One – the ultimate priest, prophet and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Join us as we deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ through Fr. Robert Barron’s new DVD-based Study Program: Priest, Prophet, King.
Explore the biblical archetypes of priest, prophet and king and see how Jesus is the ultimate fulfillment of each one. Throughout this experience, you will better understand who Jesus really is and also realize your own priestly, prophetic and kingly mission.
To afford the opportunity for as many people to partake in the Priest, Prophet, King study program we will offer the study program in the morning & evening. The evening session will begin on Wednesday, September 30 & each consecutive Wednesday evening through November 11 from 7pm until 8:30pm. The morning session will begin on Friday October 2 & each consecutive Friday through November 13 from 10:30am until 12noon.
Each session will meet in the Church Hall of Immaculate Conception Church. The cost of the series is $25.00 per person. Registration forms can be found on our website at iccnorwood.org on our home page, or you may contact the rectory at 201-768-1600.
